The 80,000-SF school will be home to the academies of medical services, law and criminal justice, and legal government and administration
SAN ANTONIO – (February 2, 2021) — Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, and Northside Independent School District (ISD), Texas’ fourth-largest school district, topped out the new Marshall Law and Medical Services Magnet High School in San Antonio. The magnet program is located on the campus of Northside ISD’s oldest high school, Marshall High School, which is also undergoing significant renovations.
Representatives from AP, Northside ISD and Pfluger Architects Inc., the planning architect on the project, were in attendance as AP secured the top beam of the new home to the district’s academies of medical services, law and criminal justice, and legal government and administration.
“We’re excited to reach this milestone on our first project in San Antonio,” said Brandon Gaeke, regional manager for AP. “Construction has gone smoothly, and we’re slated to complete the project on time. We couldn’t be happier that our initial foray into this market is a project that will help young San Antonians become esteemed members of the community.”
Northside ISD awarded AP the project in June 2020, and completion is estimated for November 2021. The $22.1 million project includes the construction of the 80,000 square-foot magnet high school, new soccer and football fields, and a parking lot. AP is also renovating Marshall High School’s career and technology building and administration area.
“The project underway at Marshall High School and Marshall Law and Medical Services Magnet High School is a sign of our district’s commitment to ensuring a first-rate education for our students in state-of-the-art facilities,” said Dr. Brian Woods, superintendent for Northside ISD. “We are grateful to the voters of Northside who have made this work possible through their support of School Bond 2018.”
AP has served as construction manager or general contractor on several school district projects in Texas for Arlington ISD, Fort Worth ISD and Garland High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Other notable projects in Texas include the new PGA Headquarters in Frisco, Texas, and Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas.
